Tracer Compact CPAP Battery - use your CPAP machine anywhere
When travelling with your CPAP, you need a battery that is compact, lightweight, robust and meets airline guidelines. The Tracer Compact CPAP Battery ticks all of the boxes. Combine it with the appropriate adaptor for your CPAP machine, and you'll get two nights sleep from its 8Ah (96Wh) capacity despite it weighing just 600g. See below for more accurate run time estimates.
Please note: The Tracer Batteries come in two capacities. If you require a battery that can power your CPAP machine for around double the amount of nights as the compact battery can, then the Tracer Ultra Battery would be your most suitable option. However, please bare in mind that the Tracer Ultra Battery is intended for those wishing to use their CPAP machine for up to 4 nights away from mains power, and it does not meet airline guidelines. Therefore if you need to use your CPAP on a long-haul flight, then the Compact Tracer Battery is your most suitable option.
The ABS casing makes the Tracer Compact CPAP Battery incredibly robust. The indicator on the side allows you to see accurately how much charge is remaining after use. Included are two chargers, one for mains and one for DC sources, allowing it to be charged while driving.
Built in Fuel Gauge
With the built in Tracer fuel gauge you can check the power level remaining in the battery. A touch of the button shows how much energy remains and whether you need to recharge.
Robust ABS Casing & Soft Grip Texture
The non slip soft grip rubber provides excellent grip. While the ABS construction provides excellent impact resistance and toughness.
Lighter. Smaller. Better.
Just ¼ of the weight of a traditional sealed lead acid batteries. The Tracer 12V Battery will easily fit in your hand luggage, and often in your CPAP machine's carry bag. Gone are the days of carrying heavy lead-acid batteries. You won't believe the difference!
Universal Connections Available
Tracer battery packs can power any CPAP machine with a 12V input. Included in the pack is a 12V cigar socket adapter, allowing you to use the DC cable for your machine. If you do not already have a DC cable for your machine, please be sure to order that also (see below for more information).
High Efficiency Charger
The compact 1.65A Charger will charge your battery in 8-12 hours. A DC charging cable is also included, allowing you to charge your machine while driving. If you would like a quicker way of charging your Compact Tracer Battery, then you can purchase an additional Fast Charger which can power your battery in 4-6 hours.
Integrated Electronic 'Battery Management System' (BMS) provides the following protection:
> Overcharge & over-discharge protection
> Thermal protection
> Over current protection
> Short circuit protection
Flat Discharge - Brighter for longer
Lithium polymer technology gives a very flat discharge curve which means sustained power to the end of the cycle, giving you sustained performance and minimising the risk of your CPAP machine powering down due to a dip in the power supply.
This lithium battery conforms to standard UN 38.3 which is the ONLY relevant safety standard for lithium batteries. The Tracer CPAP battery packs have been through a rigorous testing procedure by UN certified inspectors. You should NEVER handle a non-certified lithium battery pack.
Included with your Tracer battery:
12V 8Ah Compact Battery Pack Neoprene Carry Case Bullet right angle
to 12V Socket
1.65A AC Mains Charger
(inc: UK, US, EU, AUS Plugs)
DC Vehicle Charger

All estimates assume that the machine is being used without a humidifier, heated hose, or through an inverter. Any/all of these can significantly reduce running times.
Which 12V cable do I need?
You will need the appropriate power adapter to connect the Tracer 12V Compact CPAP Battery Pack to your CPAP machine. Intus provide most of the appropriate cables, which you can find below:
- Philips Respironics Machines - click here
- DeVilbiss SleepCube - click here
- Somnetics Transcend - click here
- *ResMed S8 - S8 Converter 33942 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed S9 - S9 Converter 36970 only available from ResMed directly
- *ResMed AirSense 10 - Air 10 DC-DC Converter 37297 only available from ResMed directly
*Please note ResMed state that their cables are "not for aircraft use". Please bear this in mind if planning to use your ResMed machine on a flight. We suspect that means not to use the cable directly into the aircraft power supply should there be a socket available at your seat, as it is difficult to see why you would not be able to use it with an independent battery source such as this one. However the wording on this note is unclear and we would strongly recommend seeking clarification from ResMed and your airline as to whether or not it will be OK to use this cable on a flight with an independent battery pack rather than the aircraft's power.

Better than expected Review by Bazzabass
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortApart from the excellent value compared to others on the market, this battery has exceeded expectations and will power my CPAP for two full nights once fully charged. You just have to remember to buy the connecting lead!(Posted on 28 January 2019)
Excellent Review by Mike
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortDoes the job very well(Posted on 19 December 2018)
Expensive but worth every penny Review by Brian
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueI ordered this product after the cut off time for next day delivery but it was with me 9:30am the next day - perfect and unexpected(Posted on 28 August 2018)
Charged it up that day and tested it a home for 4 nights - perfect with power left.
Used it for 3 nights camping plus charging up phones etc several times - perfect and still loads of power left.
I can't recommend it highly enough and could only ask for the price to be less and a fast charger to be included.
Good Review by k
Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of Use ValueReplaced an original Resmed battery with this. Capacity seems about equivalent, and it's lighter.(Posted on 22 August 2018)
Excellent product and really useful in many situations Review by Andy
Value Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of UseI bought this for a boating trip in France, and it really is amazing. I charged it after two nights, but I think it would have lasted for three. It comes with a mains and car charger. Mine was delivered with a faulty mains charger which EU-PAP immediately replaced. I also used this a couple of times in hotels where there was no power socket next to the bed. It's a little expensive (especially since it does not qualify for VAT relief) but well worth it if you're going to be in a situation where power may not be easily available. Thanks to the EU-PAP team for the great service too!(Posted on 25 June 2018)
really good product for use on aircraft Review by lardy
Value Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of UseBought this as we flew to and around Africa, ( mostly on night flights ), and it worked out perfectly....note for use on aircraft must be less than 100Wh(Posted on 13 June 2018)
Great product Review by Rob Cliff
Value Quality Website Information Comfort Ease of UseHi bought this so that I can use the CPAP machine whilst camping. It says it will run for 14 hours which would just about cover two nights. I have tested it for one night and only one out of the five lights (showing charge) has gone out, meaning that it may have longer life than that. It's not too big for a 12V battery and so I'm really happy with it.(Posted on 8 May 2018)
Does what it says Review by Chris0802
Ease of Use Value Quality Website Information ComfortFirst time user of battery power to allow more freedom of use with Philips Remstar 60 Auto courtesy of the brilliant NHS (the CPAP not the battery). Does exactly what it says, the compact battery gave me two good nights over a weekend with a bit to spare. I have used Tracer batteries for other applications and they are as good as you can get. Would thoroughly recommend the product and Intus for their superb and efficient service.(Posted on 19 March 2018)
